The Cardiff Landlord Forum was originally set-up over 10 years ago and was originally part of a requirement from national government for all local authorities to have an avenue for liaison with the landlords in their district. Since then it has evolved to become independent from Cardiff Council and is run by local volunteer landlords. The aims of the forum are to provide a facility for the education of landlords, a point of contact for the local authority to speak to landlords and gauge opinion on matters and to provide a voice for landlords on issues that concern them and their business.
The Forum meets every two months and has a fairly informal structure with an opportunity for speakers from the local authority, followed by speakers on aspects of the lettings business and a final opportunity to network with other landlords. As well as this the committee works on landlords behalf by attending local PACT meetings, sitting on committees such as Keep Cardiff Tidy, Serious Acquisitive Crimes group and the Housing Strategy Commitee for the local authority to represent landlords and obtain information on areas that might impact them.
Everyone that owns a property in the local authority region of Cardiff is considered a member of the forum, the more people that regularly attend the more of a voice local landlords have. As major stakeholders in the local community it is important for all of us to be aware of what is going on and take an active role in shaping the future of the private rented sector in Cardiff.
